I am a small 5’1, 115 lb woman so when my ex left I found myself very limited since I don’t have roof racks or the physical strength to maneuver my big kayak. This gives me the freedom to kayak whenever I please and get back to my favorite pastime!
It took 4 months to come in. With Covid and the crazy world, this isn’t great but it’s to be expected. I work in manufacturing so I understand the difficulty with supply-chain issues. The first time folding is difficult but after folding all of the seams a couple of times it gets much easier. I didn’t time myself but I have no complaints with the time it takes (took longer to load/unload my old one safely from racks with help). It’s very wide so it’s stable but not the fastest. Great for a calm lake or river. Easy to maneuver since it’s so light. The seat I got only has one seat cushion and the back, I might add some more cushion at some point. I had to keep adjusting the strap for the back of the seat as it stretched throughout my first ride but there is plenty of adjustability in the strap.
So far I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you tucktec.
Glad you are enjoying your Tucktec! Thanks for the review!
First time on the water (beginner here). It was fantastic and easy to use. Simple set up, tear down and storage. The ride was smooth and stable. We used ours to fish out of as well. Customer service is amazing, kind and prompt. Can't say enough about yhe enyire experience. Especially Can't wait to go again...we are telling everone about Tucktec!
I bought this kayak as a birthday gift to myself and I absolutely love it!! I will be replacing the seat cushion as it got uncomfortable after a long period of time.
People said it wouldn't float...I'm here to say we tried to push it into the water to clean the bottom and it took full strength of 2 strong adults and we barely got water it..it is BOUYANT. It's a real crowd pleaser, everytime we bring it out people literally flock with questions. I can't comment to the longevity of it yet as we've only used it a handful of times, but so far so good. The plastic is a lot more flexible after you use it a few times which is good because the first time putting it together was a full body workout. I can set up 2 by myself in under 10 minutes. 4 Stars only because shipping took a long time, but hey I get it. The seat is surprisingly good for a kayak seat, again hoping it stands the test of time! We had an issue with our paddle and it was mediated by Tucktec literally instantly. Really great customer service!!
Tried and loved the kayak. Easy to setup portable and relatively sturdy. Going to enjoy many hours in this boat
first day on the water was fantastic: the 8ft. runs smoothly, stable, speeds nicely, feels great. i`d love a backrest 4inches higher, but i`ll improvise.
shipping to europe was a different thing. five weeks is a considerable time, especially without notification of any sort for weeks, except "payment received".
also, it got sent to the wrong address despite me sending my new address days before shipping. that caused me several hours of driving.
sooo there`s something to work on for this otherwise fine company. looking forward to the next day out there!
Hey I loved taking out my new Tucktec for the first time ever!
It worked beautifully, I was so impressed by how stable it was and how well it tracked through the water.
I had a beautiful evening on the Newport Backbay. Fish jumped as flocks of birds flew by. Dusk settled in and the evening clouds were glorious!
I've only taken my new kayak out once, but I'm already in love! Customer service was extremely responsive and helpful with a small issue that was quickly resolved.
I think it’s adorable and I can’t wait to try it.
I received my first Tucktec on a Wednesday afternoon, practiced putting it together a couple times Thursday evening, and had it out on the water Friday afternoon. The first time assembling took some time and effort, but after that it’s been under 10 minutes. It did great out on the water. I love how easy it is to transport and store!
